THANK YOU!

We did it! YOU did it!

We've been absolutely floored by the support we've received in reaching (and exceeding!) our crowdfunding goal on Indiegogo. Thanks to you, we are moving ahead with the production of Better Days.


We'll be keeping all of you in mind as we finish crafting this new album, and we can’t wait for you experience this music that you have helped create.


Thank you for contributing. Thank you for spreading the word. Thank you for believing in us. You all rock, and so will this album.


Love,

No Island

Tête-a-tête with No Island

Jay might be the fashionable one in the band, but it was Andy and Keith who sat down with Carlo Javier from Young & Only (a super awesome fashion-culture blog in Vancouver) earlier this month to share a few tour stories, chat about our new album, and fantasize about being Katy Perry's opening act. Check it out here! It's a fun read.

Better Days Ahead

With only 9 days remaining in our campaign we’re sure you must be wondering what we’ve been doing with your contributions so far and what will happen when the pre-order ends. We’re going to fill you in with some long-awaited updates about the album's progress, starting with its name: Better Days.

That's right folks, we’ve named the album, and you can look forward to Better Days ahead!

Thanks to your awesome support, we were able to finish tracking the album with Andrew Spindor & Will Watson last week at Habitat Studios in Langley, BC. The unmixed songs already sound absolutely incredible and we can't wait for you to hear the final product!

So when will that be?
Well, the $5000 you've helped us raise so far has taken us halfway there by covering most of the studio costs, but we still have another $5000 to go in order to finish up including mixing, mastering, and printing. If our goal is met by midnight on June 15th, our estimated release date remains Fall 2014. This is the dramatic push to the finish line!

Wait, that adds up to $10000. Isn't the goal $8000?
Yes. Our projected total budget was always $10000, but we opted for a slightly more attainable crowdfunding goal to cover the most immediate recording costs. We’ve got a few plans up our sleeve to cover the rest. However, if things go super well, Indiegogo campaigns can be funded to over 100%!

I've already contributed, but how else can I help you meet your goal in time?
We can only shout from our own rooftops so much. What really helps is having other people share our campaign with friends, fellow music fans, and every social network they use. To someone unfamiliar with No Island, a word-of-mouth endorsement from a supporter like you is far more powerful than us trying to convince them about our own band. For an easy-to-remember link, simply direct people to noisland.com

Is there really no limit to what song I can make you do for the YouTube cover perk?
So far we've had some pretty ridiculous stuff thrown our way, but if there's a limit we haven't seen it yet.

When will the perks be ready?
Realistically, we'll be able to start working on the YouTube covers and other perks once the album is released. We want to be able to do a quality job for you and not rush these. Trust us, this way will be much more satisfying in the end.

This seems more like a FAQ list than an update.
You're right, sorry. Here's the tracklist for the album!

Thanks again for all your support so far, and don't forget to share!
Love,
- No Island
